Seattle--->Oakland I was born in the Bay Area and moved away at the age of 8 years. Have been back for 3 years It's good to be back.
LF: Good conversations, fun times and in the best of circumstances a partner in plots for world domination. Tobacco is a deal breaker.
I ride my bike a lot, and stay active. The goal being still be spry when I'm 75 years old and still leaving those whipper-snappers in the dust.
I enjoy cycling, cooking, hiking, anime/manga, photography, doing Visual Jockey work for bands, clubs, and festivals, filling my mind up with new knowledge about a wide variety of subjects ranging from scientific, socio-economic, to downright geeky. 420 friendly.
Day Jobs: Creating advertising multimedia for Real Estate Agents,
Part-time consultant at a startup liquor importation and distribution company with an exciting new product that the US hasn't seen yet, interviewer/video editor/webmaster for a documentary website, using the internet to learn how to cook all manners of tasty foods, and somehow managing to fit in fitness, social, and recreational activities.
Reading: Manga Trigun, Naruto, One Piece, Bleach
Non-fiction: web design, politics, philosophy, astronomy,
Fiction: Can't say I have been into fiction much recently occasionally I find myself reading scifi pulp novels.
movies: anything that won't make me do hand-wanking gestures in the air because of terrible acting or writing yes I'm talking to Joss Whedon & Michael Bay!!!
Electronic, Hip Hop.. Bassy, Synthy, Samply, Turntably, Funky Beat.

Gramatik, RJD2, Prefuse 73, Tweaker, DJ Flip, KJ Sawka, Squarepusher, Amon Tobin, Deltron 3030, DJ Krush, Bonobo, Wax Tailor, and an awesome Jazz collection given to me by a real connoisseur with an amusing anecdote to match.
food: Anything that doesn't eat me first. I have been learning to cook recently as it seems a good skill set to have. Last couple of months have included such tasties as mongolian stir fry, coconut curry chicken, 6 types of taquitos (great for the freezer), and a few crock pot soups.
Enjoying making condiments butter, ketchup, mayonnaise, BBQ sauce, ranch, french, balsamic vinaigrette salad dressings.
Much cheaper and tastier than store bought.
I love using my Ice cream maker and making sweets.
Is Earth just an electron in an atom and our universe no bigger than a grain of sand on a beach more vast than we can ever comprehend?
I ponder the arcane evils powers of pudding and canned meat.
Meeting you for dinner/drink/fun/frivolity? (Not limited to Fridays)
Also, I once went dumpster diving with Macaulay Culkin. True Story.
